What is GIF?
Graphics Interchange Format
GIF is one of the most common types of graphics, storing data in a format of no more than 256 colors. Compression occurs without loss of quality.
GIF animation works on the same principle as standard animation. The image file contains all the pictures involved in the animation. Each such picture is shown as a separate frame, for which such a characteristic is set as the display time until it changes to the next picture. In GIF animation, you can set the looping of the display of images. This image standard only supports an 8-bit palette, so only 256 colors can be used to display the image.
Microsoft Photos, GIMP, others
What is 3GP?
3GPP File Format
The 3GP format was created by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project for the purpose of transmitting multimedia over cellular networks. 3GP was designed for 3G phones, but some 2G and 4G phones support it, too. Below, we’ve provided specifications for the 3GP file type.
A 3GP file can contain video, audio, and timed text. The video is encoded with either H.263 or H.264, and the audio with AMR-NB, AMR-WB, AAC-LC, HE-AAC v1, or Enhanced aacPlus. Most likely, your phone can play 3GP files, but opening these videos on other devices might be tricky. Some of the programs that support the playback of 3GP files are listed below. Refer to this list if you’re not sure how to open these videos.
VLC, QuickTime Player, and MPlayer
